VIN Decoder

(This add-on cost has a one-time, perpetual license cost of $7,725 and an ongoing Upgrade & Support fee of $1,545.)

The FASTER Web VIN Decoder is an add-on that allows a user to scan or manually enter a VIN and have the VIN decoded by the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). The VIN Decoder integrates seamlessly into the Create Asset and Select Asset processes, helping users get to the next action quickly.

VIN Decoder provides fleet personnel the following capabilities:

  • Input VIN using barcode scanner or manual entry.
  • Decode VIN via NHTSA and prepopulate values in the Create Asset process.
  • Automatic creation of Table Look Up values, such as Make, if the value provided by NHTSA is not in FASTER Web.

Additional Details:

  • An Asset’s VIN can be input by a barcode scanner reading or via manual entry.
  • Scanning a barcode will launch the VIN Decoder search automatically from anywhere in the system with the exception of Inventory fields and specific Fuel Vendor Mapping tools.
    • If the VIN does not exist, the system takes the user to the “Create New Asset” functionality.
    • If the VIN does exist, the system takes the user to the “Select Asset” functionality.
  • When a VIN is decoded, the following fields will be imported and pre-populated within the “Create New Asset” functionality:
    • Vehicle Make
    • Vehicle Model
    • Year
    • Drivetrain
    • Engine
  • The user can override the values populated by the VIN Decoder when creating an Asset.
  • Decoded NHTSA values not already in the system will automatically be added to the appropriate field list in Setup when saving the asset.
  • When saving an Asset, the system checks to see if the value being added was previously obsoleted. If it was, the system warns the user to activate the value in Setup, or select a different value. 
  • The VIN Decoder is designed to recognize a VIN and try to decode it. But there are some areas of FASTER Web where scanning a barcode will never try to decode a VIN:
    • Inventory Module: FASTER Web Inventory will not automatically execute the VIN Decoder when scanning a barcode.
    • Pop-up windows: Scanning a VIN while focus is on a pop-up window will read the barcode only and will not launch the VIN Decoder add-on.
    • Fuel Vendor Mapping: Scanning a VIN barcode to configure Vendor Fuel Mapping will not launch the VIN Decoder add-on.
    • Located under Maintenance > Search Issued Item: Search Issued Item will not invoke automatic VIN-based descriptors.

Prerequisites

Limitations

The FASTER Web VIN Decoder requires a valid VIN that can be decoded by the NHTSA.
